I'm having a problem booting FreeBSD 5.2.1 using a 5.2.1 release CD. The system hangs when mounting the / partition on md0. (memory disk i think) I never make it to the gui installer. It does work if i use safe mode.

System hardware:
Athelon XP 2000+   (266mhz fsb)
PC2100  256mb ram
40 gig maxtor ata 133 hdd
ASUS nforce2 based motherboard with onboard NIC
Nvidia geforce 2 AGP video  64mb

Looking on the freebsd website, I noticed that it could be a problem with ACPI or maybe the IDE controller. Is there a way to disable this on the installed version? I'm hoping its the ACPI and not the ata133 ide controller. The ide controller is the nforce2 which the release notes say it supports.

How can i turn it off and/or debug it? I'd like the IDE controller to run at full speed as this will be a mail/dns server.

Please reply to me as my regular email address is down which i subscribe with (hence the mail server). use [EMAIL PROTECTED]
